So the Recked Industries “Hole Shot Glory” and Big Whip Competition was held at Zone 7 in Cape Town this past weekend. For a first time event it went pretty well with some decent support form the local Motorsport enthusiasts as well as a few athletes who enjoyed the event concept and cannot wait for the next HOLE SHOT GLORY madness in 2017.

Hole Shot is basically like a MX dirt bike drag race !! Two riders tear down a straight, around some tires and back across the finish line. Its a knock out series with the top riders battling it out for Prize money. Winner takes all which means high intensity action which gets you pretty ‘Revved’ up as the intensity increases as the riders get closer to the final rounds.

The Big Whip competition takes place with the guys hitting a metal ramp and landing on a dirt landing. The gap between is around 22 m of pretty much nothing. To the general rider, this is terrifying. The guys hit a ramp and whip their bike out as far as they can before trying to get it back in line for the landing or face eating dirt. These guys get it pretty much backwards. The points are judged by style as well as how huge the whip is. Crowd support plays a huge part as well when it comes to deciding who wins.
